decided okay mr. obama, tell you what. we will put you out of business. bad as the war that is going on right now between the big new york banks, these trillionaire banks and the billionaire vulture funds. there is this massive war going on right now at the top of finance in that treehouse. the 1% is split, and we -- and we have the battlefield on which they play. now, what is our job? .. >> united latin american citizens and others, people for the american way, please, go to the groups, protect your vote, and at the back of the book, i don't want you to say, oh, my god, what do you do? the millionaires. we've won a lot of battles. we won the right to vote for african-americans at the end of the civil war, and won is again a hundred years later. we have to do it again. yeah, at the turn of the century, we have to win again at the turn of this century. 70% of the people over 65 who don't have qualified ids in wisconsin under their new id law to stop the fraud to end voters that don't exist, 70 #% of people who got id are women. it's not just a race issue. it's a gender issue. it's a c
that his big government philosophy would improve the economy. even though mr. obama had trouble in other areas like libya, it is the economy that has made this election a struggle for him. the cold truth is, that the president has not improved the american economy. and if you are voting just on that, you will vote against him. if mitt romney loses, it will be because he did not get his message out. over the past three weeks of the campaign the governor has played it very cautious. he did few meaningful interviews. relying on local campaigning in key states to put him over the top. both the president and the governor will do interviews this evening on monday night football. but so what? those are cupcake events. they mean absolutely nothing. kind of sad that both candidates dodged forums that might have challenged them. americans respect politicians who do answer the tough questions. as you may know, talking points does not endorse political condition democrats, believing that you are smart enough to know for whom you want to vote. but it is my job to look out for you and for the country.

and all, those things don't time themselves out well. with the stimulus measures that mr. obama is proposing, in such a way that could reward, could avoid a recession. melissa: so you see, the group of people that we sent back to washington that have to work together, and now it is not a joke. there is no room for fighting any longer. all of this partisanship, the class warfare, the criticism of each other has got to go to the side. and i think that maybe that is what the selloff today is about. people are afraid it won't. what would be your rest see for lawmakers to come together and work together? what is the first thing you would do? >> well i think there needs to be an honest appreciation and understanding of the objectives of the programs that the other side is putting out. there has to be an understanding on each party's part of the genuine cost that the other sees with their pet projects. and so that they can understand that, the nature of the tradeoffs, that could be accomplished, in a reasonable way. political ttadeoffs don't correspond to the kinds of economic tradeoff
is that mr. obama doesn't have a big vision of where he could take america. he seems to have this vague notion that things are better in europe and things here should be more like they are there. on the republican side, there is this sense any of these kinds of policies are taking us too far away from our moorings, our founding principles and so forth. and be they inconsistent with the requirements of a dernorld, there is still only, only willing to make limited concessions with regard to them. melissa: okay. >> you have two ships passing in the dark. melissa: you're depressing me. are we going to go, i'm trying to be cheery here. i don't know if you can tell, but i'm trying to be cheery and trying to make people feel better. is there a solution out there, yes or no? do you think we're going over the fiscal cliff? i don't want you to tell me what it is. >> we're not going over the fiscal cliff. melissa: okay. >> becau at the end of the day the republicans will have to blink o taxes. the alternative would be for them to say everybody's taxes go up, and that would be a politically unsalea
